Longterm friend of Oh Yeah and More Volume mentor, Tony Wright, has just released his sixth studio album in 9 years, the acclaimed ‘outro’ has been picking up rave reviews across the board – with The Irish Times declaring it, “a work of pure joy”. He released the album as a precursor to his highly anticipated first book, “Chapter & Verse(ChorusVerse)” which launches at The Belfast MAC (where Tony is currently Artist in Residence) on October 17th as part of the Belfast International Festival at Queens followed by a tour of theatres across Ireland, where Tony will be performing a One Man Show of theatrical readings from the work interspersed with songs from his extensive back catalogue.
On top of this and delivering Oh Yeah’s More Volume:Shankill programme as well, Tony is co-starring in a web based comedy series about musicians that he wrote additional material with alongside his good friend Michael Macullagh, “Son of The Hound” before he makes his feature film debut in the biopic of sportsman, Bert Trautmann in November. What a busy human!
